Default Van Halen

Heh, sorry if I got anyones hopes up. Although there are lots of rumors of VH getting back together (david and eddie...), i doubt itll happen any time soon. POINT ASIDE, I was browsing blabbermouth.net and came across this today:

From blabbermouth.net

Original VAN HALEN frontman David Lee Roth is featured on three tracks on "Strummin' with the Devil: The Southern Side of Van Halen", a collection of VAN HALEN songs done in bluegrass style that will be released on June 6. Roth joins the JOHN JORGENSON BLUEGRASS BAND for twangy renditions of "Jump" and "Jamie's Cryin'", as well as a special radio edit of the latter.

The album also features DAVID GRISMAN AND SONS, BLUE HIGHWAY, MOUNTAIN HEART, IRON HORSE, and others offering new interpretations of such VAN HALEN favorites as "Runnin' With The Devil", "Hot For Teacher", "Panama", "Eruption", "Ice Cream Man", "Dance The Night Away", and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love".

You can now listen to the CD "Strummin' with the Devil: The Southern Side of Van Halen" in streaming media on CMT.com's "Hear Music Now" web site.


In the liner notes, the Indiana-born Roth explains that "my roots were always kind of country — not the same country as my first band. Their flag had windmills. Mine had BBQ pit and a shot glass."

The idea is odd, but the music is goooood I listened to the whole thing off cmt and was really surprised how good it is. Any thoughts?

I used to have a big crush on Eddie Van Halen, but chances are he isn't as 'cute' looking anymore.. sadders.

i'm not looking forward to anything from then.. seeings how they'll more then likely suck, come back and go unreconized and then forgot about, then they'll go away again.
